Due to the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) outbreak, MSU has canceled the 2020 Summer Circle Theatre Kids Camp. Instead, we encourage all Mid-Michigan kids in 1st thru 6th grade to enjoy the Summer Circle Playwrights Workbook, created by theatre senior Christopher Michael Kaifesh.

Once you have completed your work, we invite you submit your script to us! Student volunteers from the Department of Theatre will bring your script to life and we will share the video on our YouTube channel.

Submit Your Script!

Following Summer Circle Theatre’s 60-year tradition to provide free theatre to the community, the priority of SCT Kids Camp is to make theatre arts accessible to disadvantaged students; financial or otherwise. We will be accepting application for camp beginning in March. Once we have reached our limit we cannot accept other students, but you may be added to the waitlist by contacting
Ann Folino White at or 517-884-7790.

Summer Circle Theatre Kids Camp is taught by MSU Department of Theatre faculty, undergraduate students, and graduate students.
The camp will include instruction in acting, design, music, and dance.

Camp will culminate in a free public performance on June 19, 2020 at 6:30pm.

Summer Circle Theatre is providing a FREE summer kids camp to
60 lucky rising 1st through 6th grade mid-Michigan students.


We depend on donations to make great programs like this happen. Please consider donating to keep Summer Circle Theatre Kids Camp going and free for all.
